A group of premium South African wineries have announced their programme of trade, consumer and press events for the UK in June.

 

All fifteen members of Premium Independent Wineries of South Africa (PIWOSA), which launched in January to raise the profile of premium South Africa wine, will travel to London for 10 invite only events.

 

The programme begins on Monday June 3 with a consumer and trade evening tasting with QUAFF and Henry Butler Wines in Brighton and culminates in a trade tasting and dinner on Thursday June 6. Members will also be available all week for individual meetings.

 

"This is an ambitious series of activities for our first year but we are confident that there is sufficient interest in South African wine and in the dynamism of the country's winemakers and the PIWOSA group specifically.

 

"We really look forward to meeting UK consumers and those involved in all aspects of the trade to demonstrate just how far we have come in recent years and our plans for the future," said PIWOSA secretary Bevan Newton Johnson.

 

PIWOSA plans to run further activities in Scandinavia, the US, Canada, Hong Kong and China.
